How do I raise all objects up 7 meters?

I have a model built on the ground floor (C = 0). I would like to select all objects and raise them up 7 meters so I can import the model as the second story to another model? It would be best if I didn't have to select each object and raise it independently.

Thanks, Tee

Three really great solutions. I should have thought of the last two but I didn't.

Thanks for the prompt an informative responses. Tee

If you shift select the entire group (red highlighted) and then click on one of the selected objects to "yellow highlight" it, you can use the mouse wheel to scroll up and down moving all the selected objects at the same time.

Select all objects. Make a group out of them, then you can get access to them later again easily. Change the z location of one highlighted object of all selected objects and use "copy from the highlighted" with the "location z". This works naturally only if you can use the Edit Selected Objects Tool in HC, too. But this, I don't know.

Thanks, Jörg,

The Edit Selected Objects Tool In HC seems to have a great deal of power but is use is not always obvious :-(.

Now I know to features of the Edit Selected Objects Tool...

You can run this script:

for(int i = 2; i <= content(model()); i++) {
	set(spatialz(rank(model(), i)), 7);
}

Thanks, Matthew,

I forget about running scripts for One time changes.
